            I think they got a show on some channel that tells the story of the most bizarre stuff that gets into people's bodies. I think one of them had a guy come in with a knife in his head on halloween. The doctors thought it was a joke until they examined the guy.

                  The same thing happened once to Homer Simpson.

                  Oh, wait.

                  That was a crayon.
